Mourning Dove by Michael Cummings

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

A graceful, slender-tailed, small-headed dove that’s common across the continent. Mourning Doves perch on telephone wires and forage for seeds on the ground; their flight is fast and bullet straight. Their soft, drawn-out calls sound like laments. When taking off, their wings make a sharp whistling or whinnying. Mourning Doves are the most frequently hunted species in North America.

Taken in Brighton, Ontario, Canada

    Very beautiful Michael…I’ve never seen one so well photographed!!!!

  • Thank you Lorraine, I was so lucky with this one. It never moved from the branch and allowed me to get some great full frame shots in perfect light.
